She Said, He Said

She said, "Honey, I can't wait to go on vacation with you. We'll be like honeymooners again."

He said, "Not really."


She said, "I want to hold hands and walk down narrow streets filled with carts of goods and assorted treasures."

He said, "Sure, I'll hold your hand."


She said, "I want romantic nights under a star-filled sky."

He said, "Have fun. I'll be in bed."


She said, "What?!"

He said, "What? There's bugs and spiders and lizards."

*This was a real conversation between real people. No actors were used in the telling of this tale. No names were used to protect the not-so-innocent, but I'm sure you can guess the participants of this scene.*

There's bugs.... haha!


It'll be fun just to get away... I envy you!

Jenster said...

Blasted men!!!

Be sure to take tons and tons of pictures so you can post them when you get back!

Shauna said...

TMC - I'm so excited to get away, I'll even bunk with the bugs. ;-)

Jenster - I have a HUGE fear of all things that creep, crawl, slither and scurry. He keeps reminding me of all the things I'm trying not to think of. Isn't that sweet? :-P

Becky said...

Bwahahaha...that was hilarious, Shauna. I mean, how you so cleverly phrased everything.

I give it one night to get rested up after your travels, and he'll soon change his mind. There's something about being in a different environment, without kids knocking on the bedroom door or needing you every five minutes that really stirs up the blood...

If that doesn't work, you may have to make plans to stop off at Jenster's church on the way back home, and take a little stroll through that Amish community with the, ahem, interesting name. ;0)

I just got back from Costa Rica and we didn't see any bugs, however it rained cats and dogs. From what I've been told there's not to be that many bugs. You'll have to let me know. I'm sure that you'll have no trouble finding some atmosphere.

Jenster said...

Bwahahaha, Becky!!

Jenster said...

I'm back. I'm kind of like a stalker that way.

So when are you going? Is it soon or in a few months or what?? Because I'm worried I'll miss you when you're gone and I need to be prepared. :o(

HAHAHAHHAA!!!! too funny, Becky!

Chad's paying you back for posting that photo...=)

Shauna said...

Becky - It will be pure luxury not to have to say, "Stop. Did you hear the kids?" And a visit to Jenster's part of the country could prove informative and...exciting. LOL!

airingon - Perhaps I just need to buy a new 'little somethin' to spark the mood - tee,hee.

Jenster - We leave on November 2 and will be home on the 14th. I'm excited, but I can't imagine 12 WHOLE DAYS without my internet buddies. :-(

Deb - I need some way to make it up to him. LOL!

Daisy said...


Be sure to take pictures of all those creepy crawlies for us! ;o)

Jenster said...

Yes, dear. I'm sure you'll have nothing better to do than miss us.

BWAHAHAHAHAHA!!! OH, that's rich!!!

Do I need to send you the CDs of our current sermon series????

OH! That reminds me. I thought of you in church this morning (NO - not because of the series - lol) because we sang an updated version of Ode to Joy. LOVED IT! Anyway, I was wondering if you guys have ever sang it. It was pretty awesome.

Jenster said...

Make that Joyful, Joyful. :o)

Shauna said...

Daisy - I'll brave it and take a few. My coping mechanism is to not look too closely at things around me. Kind of like, if you look for it you'll most likely find it. But I'm gonna take a few. I may even get a picture of the gekko that lives in the walls of my cousin's house. ;-)

Jenster - I'm sure I can find other things to be besides missing my computer. LOL! The time will fly I'm sure. Do you happen to know who did the song? Was it a popular band or did your worship team come up with that version on their own? I'd love to hear it and get a feel for the song. Thanks for thinking of me...with regards to the music. LOL!

Shauna said...

Jenster - Oops, that was supposed to read, "I can find other things to do..."

Jen said...

Have a wonderful time Shauna! I envy you - can't wait to see your pictures! Safe travel!

Jenster said...

I think it was arranged by someone else, but I'm not sure. I'll ask Ben and let you know.

Shauna said...

Jen - Thanks. Hopefully the pictures turn out.

Jenster - That'd be great. I'd love to hear it. I'm always on the lookout for great new tunes. There are just too many to catch them all.
